Thank you for your application. At present tow drivers are employed by mechanic shops - can you please provide more details on why an external company should now provide this service - what would you offer that a mechanic shop employee can not?

What sets us apart from mechanic tows, is that we are a one stop shop for multiple salvage needs. We would use a set of guidlines to determine if a vehicle is available for salvage, as well as taking in a multitude of items that could help create additional vehicle parts used in our various mechanic shops across the city. We would also offer those who choose to bring wrecked and totaled vehicles our yard additional incentives such as a slightly higher payout than the PD run impound lots, allowed because of our in house cost control, leading to a more profitable venture for multiple businesses, including mechanic shops and independent contractors alike.

This post is breaking character. Keep posts in character when posting in the IC sections of the government website.
what also sets us apart is we would like to offer an alternative to going down to the resource center for civilians of the state. To give those who have been grinding or saving up some RP as a break from the press 'e' meta. Our pricing would be competitive with the resource center. We in turn would use these items to hep process the raw materials for auto parts to sell to our mechanics across the city.

You currently have an active court case against you, as such, this application must be placed on hold until this has been resolved

I have been reviewing your application and your criminal history - I understand that you are hoping to have an expungement in the near future to be able to clear your record and as such make you potentially eligable for a business license.

I need to make you aware that an expungment clears your public record - however this information is still available to the government and can be taken into consideration with your application.

Unfortunately, I note two areas of concern on your criminal record:
1 - that you have a very serious charge on your record
2 - you are consistently being given citations for speeding - which considering you wish to open a business that involves driving, you can see why this would be worry some for me - some of these were only a few days ago.

I would highly recommend that you look for a business partner for this venture

After further consideration, given the severe nature of your earlier charges I am not comfortable moving ahead with your application - if you wish to continue you will have to find a majority business partner. Please advise me in the next 5 days on how you wish to proceed.

Thank you for taking the time to review my business application. As discussed earlier, I plan on receiving an expungement very soon, as the paperwork has already been submitted. Once the expungement is approved, all charges should be removed from record, both public and government, as stated by @Chance Noonan in person on 11/28/22 to Patrick Hinton, the future Manager of the business. I would like to invite Salem Adima, my character witness to discuss the things that I have done in order to turn a new leaf. I have also discussed joining the Junior Ranger program to further prove my ability to remain clean long after recieving this business license. If you care to shed further light on your policies surrounding an expungement, I would greatly appreciate it. Having stated the above, I would like to ask for an extension on this application to be able to complete the expungement process.

As mentioned above, the expungement process clears the charges from public view - however the government can use its discretion to take into account any past charges when making these kind of applications.

You have a charge on your record that is significant and at this time I am not prepared to offer the business license to you on your own - as mentioned if you wish to go into partnership with a 2nd party, I would be happy to consider.

Further to our conversation - I would be happy to consider a temporary partnership - I can see that you are trying to turn over a new leaf and we of course wish to support this, have a chat with your team and we can talk further.

I would be happy to partner with Zariah in this business venture. This would be contingent on the fact that I would be approved for an expungement of my own, as I also have a record currently. I have access to the same collateral as she does, however, I can provide additional collateral if needed. Is there anything you need from me?

Please have a lawyer start the expungement process for you, if you are able to arrange this quickly, its possible that both yours and Zariahs can be done together.

The collateral amount is already in place with Zariah - so I do not seen anything additional from yourself on this.

I would propose that the partnership is aimed to be in place for 2 months - with a review at the end of 1 month to see how things are progressing, how the business is operating and that records are clean.

With this in mind, I am happy to provide a PROVISIONAL approval for the license - this will only be converted to a full approval when the expungments are completed.

In the meantime, please (both of you) prepare for an interview with myself - this will be an opportunity for you to explain how the business will function, staffing levels, financial controls etc.

I just want to comment as a character witness for Zariyah. She has been spending a lot of time around me and engaging in completely legal activities and I have witnessed her actively working towards a clean lifestyle. She mentioned the Jr Rangers program and I would even be willing to do the program with her for companionship and further witness (and because it looks fun to be honest) her effort involved. I believe that she is honestly working to keep her record clear and deserves the chance to headline this business.

Just wanted to keep everyone updated, I went ahead and filed for expungement and submitted the paperwork with a lawyer yesterday. I assume all we wait for now is for a judge to take a look and schedule a meeting with me to discuss whether or not it was accepted as well as how much it will cost.

i can confirm that both have been accepted by a Judge and they should be reaching out to you very soon
